Buy with confidence.  History of the Henney bodied Packards  The Henney Motor Company, originally Henney Carriage Works, was founded in the mid-1800s by Jacob Henney. The company had successfully transitioned into motorcar coachwork in the early 1920’s and by the 1930’s it was one of the country’s most sought after coachbuilders for marques such as Cadillac, Lincoln, Pierce-Arrow and Packard. After the WWII Henney and Packard offered several stylish offerings including some one-off show cars including the famed 1952 Pan American for the 1952 New York Auto Show which inspired the Packard Caribbean for 1953. Packard with Henney reintroduced the long-wheelbase limousine also 1953 with a 149 inch wheelbase and two lavish offerings; a Corporate model and an Executive model, the latter of which only had 100 examples produced. Both cars were referred to as the “Henney Corporate Models” and were only available on a special order basis. These hand-built coaches were finished in Henney’s Freeport, Illinois facility and were lavishly appointed with amble seating for eight passengers thanks in part to rear fold away jump seats. Perhaps unsurprisingly many of these 1953 coaches were purchased by the U.S. Government for official use and examples of which are seldom seen today. Trades welcome! Financing available. Please visit www.schmitt.com to view our full inventory.
